The auspicious festival of Janmashtami 2020 is here. Temples and shrines at homes are all decorated with fresh flowers, and light to celebrate Laddu Gopal’s birth anniversary. On the festival of Krishna Janmashtami, it is common to see people gathered at temples to worship the idols, participate and enact plays on the life of Shri Krishna. However, this year, because of the pandemic, the celebration of Janmashtami, also called Gokulashtami is limited, and people are significantly celebrating the day at their home. Netizens woke up to sharing Happy Krishna Janmashtami 2020 wishes, messages and Shri Krishna HD images on Twitter and other social media platforms. They share adorable photos of Laddu Gopal and how they are celebrating Gokulashtami 2020 at home.

Janmashtami is a Hindu festival that celebrates the birth of Krishna, who is believed to be the eighth incarnation of Lord Vishnu. The festival is celebrated at temples and homes through fasting, singing, decorating and bathing the idol of Lord Krishna. Devotees sing kirtan or songs of devotion and glorification, in a group, praising Krishna. But because Krishna Janmashtami 2020 is in the middle of a pandemic, gatherings are a big no-no, which is why most of the famous temples are organising online darshan of Lord Krishna for the devotees.

People have taken to Twitter to share Krishna Janmashtami 2020 wishes, messages and Gokulashtami images, celebrating the birth of Lord Krishna, while following restrictions and limiting the festival celebration to their homes. In this article, we will check some of the Happy Krishna Janmashtami 2020 wishes, and Laddu Gopal images that show how netizens across the nation are celebrating the day.

He also played a significant role in the Hindu epic, Mahabharata and guided Arjun throughout his journey. Devotees worship Lord Krishna on this day to honour his birth anniversary and celebrate Gokulashtami.
